Custom Helmet Paint Job
As a very big Formula 1 fan, I decided that I wanted to get a custom helmet paint job this offseason. I found a fellow over on Bimmerforums who was painting helmets and had done some amazing jobs.
I contacted him and I gave him an idea of what I wanted my helmet to look like. I wanted to have something about Senna – but decided to go with an Indian flag theme. Narain Karthikeyan, a F1 driver for HRT, has an indian flag inspired helmet when he was racing in GP2. I loved how his helmet looked.
We decided to go with that, but I wanted to add a Michael Schumacher grid on the halo. So we came up with this idea.
The back of the helmet, I wanted a black area, and a track map of the Nordschleife, since I drove it in 2010, I wanted to have it on the back, but in gold.
I then purchased a HJC AR-10-2 Helmet in White and sent it to him.
Here are pictures from start to finish.
